CRANBOURNE - 23 January 2023
Nice first jump outs from BELVAGO and CAMPANIA VOLPE in Heat 8 on Jan 23. BELVAGO went forward and did it from the front, going to the line untouched under a strong hold, while CAMPANIA VOLPE did it from the back, rounding the field and closing strongly where she did her best work over the final 200m in a strong bit of work. We’ll follow the both of them into another jump out before resuming.
EMBARQUE was is a nice big flashy Zoustar filly and closed really strongly from the back of the field to finish 3rd in Heat 10 on Jan 23. This was a lovely first jump out and she’s a lovely looking filly so want to follow her into another bit of work - she'd be the top pick of the jump outs.
VIGNERON was another from Heat 10 on Jan 23 that closed nicely but this son of Shalaa sat on speed and wide throughout the heat. He did so under his own steam in an encouraging first jump out for the $440k gelding.
LOCO didn’t fire a shot in a Jan 16 jump out over 1000m when he was slowly away and always at the back, but it was a completely different story in Heat 14 on Jan 23 over the 1200m. The 3yo son of So You Think didn’t have a stack of early speed but was able to sit pretty in behind the speed before getting the gaps in the straight and opening up a huge margin late as he was given a slight reminder from the jockey, but mainly under his own steam. He’ll get over some distance but certainly one worth keeping a close eye on.
CAMPERDOWN - 23 January 2023
Huge win from MISS MILHOUS in Heat 11 on Jan 23, going straight to the front after showing some nice early speed and never looking back, leaving the likes of Zennzella, The Last Napoleon and Mckeever in her wake. Archie Alexander usually has a quiet first jump out before a pushed out second bit of work, so it’s a really encouraging sign to see them win well and we certainly need to follow her into that second jump out. They paid $220k for this daughter of Toronado, so the stable clearly liked her at the Gold Coast Yearling Sales and it looks for good reason.
CONAN MAC MORNA put in a really solid performance in his first jump out in Heat 10 on Jan 23 despite flopping out of the gates. He was a clear last in the early stages but slowly edged his way forward out wide and around the field, closing off superbly under no pressure to finish a close 3rd. It was a superb bit of work despite the start and keen to follow this Heroic Valour gelding into another jump out prior to his debut.
GREAT WESTERN - 24 January 2023
PAKENHAM - 24 January 2023
Lovely first jump out of the preparation from BELMASAI, coming over the top of the speedy and leading Sharna Star late in Heat 7 on Jan 24 to win in the fastest 800m time of the morning, putting a big gap on 3rd place too. This was only his first jump out this preparation having had another jump out in a previous prep on Sep 13 that saw him finish 2nd to Vegas Diva (who then ran 2nd in a MDN and 1st in a BM58) while ahead of Margie’s Boy in 4th, who won on debut. We’ll need to see another jump out from the 3yo son of Bel Esprit, but this was an encouraging performance especially considering he was only a $14k purchase.
MORNINGTON - 25 January 2023
Keen to follow LADY DI DI on the back of her debut prep form anyway. She was 2nd on debut to Katsu (won BM64 next start) before then running 2nd to Skidamarink (won BM64 next start) and then running 3rd to Aoraki Summit and Flying Temptress (won MDN next start). She just jogged around in a 700m jump out on Jan 18, but was given more of a hit out in Heat 11 on Jan 25 where she was pushed out late to win. She just needs to find a maiden where she won’t meet one better and she will be very hard to hold out, so keen to follow her first up regardless.
Impressive first up winner RICH FORTUNE was back at the jump outs following a 5-week freshen up, taking out Heat 3 on Jan 25 with ease. She broke her maiden first up in a BM70 for us in a super performance and she’s certainly one we can follow through the grades.
TIZ ENUF was 2nd in a Jan 13 jump out at Flemington where he split Aditi (1st) and Karakarib (3rd) followed by subsequent winners Amur (4th) and Fistsoffury (5th), which is super jump out form. The 2yo filly was back at the jump outs, taking out Heat 6 on Jan 25 in impressive fashion as she went straight to the front and was simply too good late, clocking the fifth fastest 900m time of the morning. A daughter of Rich Enuff, she looks to have a stack of speed and quite keen to be keeping an eye on her ahead of her debut.
DEGREEOFDIFFICULTY had two previous jump outs over 600m and 700m, stepping up to 900m for his third jump out ahead of his debut and this was certainly his most impressive. The 3yo All Too Hard colt took a sit behind the speed in Heat 10 on Jan 25 as he got a lovely run in transit before getting the gap at the top of the straight where he was then put under a little bit of pressure and asked to extend, which he did as he got past the leaders to win quite comfortably in the end. Like that change of gears from him and like that he hit the line strongly despite the slow-ish overall time, he looks to be a colt that moves nicely.
That’s now four jump outs from GREYT MUMMA since her debut 4th, winning all four of them with three coming this prep, the latest a win in Heat 12 on Jan 25 over 900m in the fastest time of the morning. Slightly worried about her racing pattern suiting jump outs as she is a jump and run horse that leads and goes very quick early, so it’s no surprise to see her win jump outs but have to tread carefully as raceday pressure is a lot different.
FLEMINGTON - 27 January 2023
DRAFT DAY was super in Heat 11 on Jan 27, jumping and just cruising throughout the heat when sitting 3-wide on speed, doing it as easy as you like. The two inside of him were still maidens, but liked how effortlessly he did it here. He had the nose roll on here but no blinkers as he wore in his last run so there could be some more improvement to come there.
WHITE BEAR caught the eye from a Jan 13 when finishing behind Fly On Bye (since 3rd in BM70) and he caught the eye again in Heat 13 on Jan 27 but this time for a different reason. In his first jump out he was hard held throughout out the back, whereas in this jump out he was allowed to go forward and given a lot more reign, leading throughout as he cruised to the line to record a soft victory. He’s a nice mover and keen to follow him into his debut.
RANDWICK - 23 January 2023
Thought PORTFOLIA was super in her first trial. The 2yo Capitalist filly was away slowly in Trial 13 on Jan 23 and as a result found herself a very clear last but travelling comfortably as Brett Prebble was able to take her to the outside for clear galloping room and once she was put under a bit of pressure, she really responded and picked up, finishing within 0.8L of the winner. If you keep watching past the line, she was powering still in a very good performance. A $220k purchase, keep a close eye on her into another trial before she heads to the races.
WYONG - 24 January 2023
Three trials for three wins for KING’S DUTY now, taking out Trial 16 on Jan 24 over 845m where he led and kicked away over the concluding stages to record a pretty easy 2.16L win. He did similar in his 900m trial on Jan 4, leading before being put under pressure over the concluding stages and also kicking away late to win by 3.41L. He’s going well enough at the trials to be one to watch closely on debut.
HAWKESBURY - 24 January 2023
KA YING RADIANCE is something. He was super in his first trial on Jan 12 where he went straight to the front over the 900m and won by 4.93L in the fastest time of the morning. He proved that was no fluke by doing the same in Trial 6 on Jan 24, winning by 7.82L and again clocking the fastest time of the morning, this time over 1000m as he clocked 58.35s which is also the third fastest time we have recorded at Hawkesbury. He was a $375k purchase being by I Am Invincible out of a half-sister to In Secret, which makes him a ¾ sister to In Secret and considering he’s been trialling the house down, we expect him to do the same on debut wherever he goes.
PEREILLE was very costly for us in his debut prep, placing in all three runs without winning having been beaten by a combined margin of 1.38L. He was given a let up following his most recent one, returning for a very quiet trial on Jan 9 over 740m without the blinkers on, but once they went on in Trial 4 on Jan 24, there was no mucking around. He sat just off the leaders and then go to work in the straight once he was asked to extend, kicking away for a dominant win. He’s more than got a maiden win in him.
ASSOCIATE was knocked off by Straight Acer when he was first up over 1400m, that runner has since ran a 0.73L 5th in a BM72, which is solid form. He was back at the trials in Trial 5 on Jan 24, dropping to the rear of the field in the early stages before he was taken to the middle of the track and closed nicely, finishing 2nd quite easily. He’s a good looker and a nice mover, keeping a close eye on him second up.
The winner of Trial 5 on Jan 24 was AMADI, a 4yo gelding that we’ve been keeping a close eye on ever since he won an Apr 26 trial in NZ impressively. He’s gone 3/3 at the trials now in Aus, partly due to his friendly racing pattern as he likes to lead. He’ll go to the front on debut and should be in it a long way if he can find the right race, there is something about him that we like.
BRAVE KNIGHT was having his first trial and he made the most of it, winning by 5.18L over 800m in Trial 15 on Jan 24 in the clear fastest time of the morning. He had the blinkers on and went straight to the front to record a very easy win, so it wouldn’t surprise to see him now jet off to Hong Kong as there was obviously intent here as a $150k purchase for John Foote Bloodstock.
